LYDN continues focusing on youth issues

The Lushoto Youth Development Network is not resting on its laurels while awaiting funding for environmental enterprise training. Currently they are working on learning how to use the Liche flower to make added-value products and have recently submitted a proposal to the Rapid Funding Envelope for HIV/AIDS so that they can begin working on an HIV education program in Lushoto.

As the youth involved in LYDN are primarily out-of-school youth, they do not generally receive this type of education. LYDN hopes that by providing the youth members with real information about the threat of HIV/AIDS, they might be able to influence their peers through organized discussion groups, rather than informal meetings, and have a positive influence on their community.
